    Our Joyful Marriage Ceremony

    We decided to get married during the COVD-19 pandemic. I talked with Ann McKenzie on Sunday and on Monday at 2 PM she was at our home to perform the ceremony. She emailed us a sample simple ceremony, we revised it and Ann was prepared to read our words. Her spirit is positive and joyful. Our wedding was perfect.

    It was my pleasure to officiate your lovely backyard wedding. It was a special celebration for a love that has lasted for many years. I was happy to make this happen quickly during this health crisis. I know you look forward to traveling to Sweden when the restrictions are lifted to celebrate with family there also.

    Wonderful to work with

    Ann officiated our wedding on December 29, 2019. She was very professional, on time, and overall wonderful. She was an absolute pleasure to work with. We had a very small wedding (7 guests) and she made the entire process very easy. Our ceremony was exactly what we wanted. We would highly recommend Ann to anyone!

    Ann is so wonderful, attentive, and personable! I 100% recommend going with Ann!

    Ann McKenzie went above and beyond in making sure that my husband and I were all taken care of for our special day. As a bride that was trying to plan a wedding out of state in a very short time period, Ann really made the entire process seamless and took the stress off of my husband and I. Ann was extremely responsive to our questions and requests. On the day of our wedding, she came to my bridal suite to check in on me and reassurred me that everything was all set and good to go!

    Our ceremony was sweet and light-hearted thanks to Ann. She was also so informative about the wedding license process and next steps we needed to take, Again, she made everything seamless and to our surprise, our marriage license even came in the mail sooner than we had expected.

    Ann is so wonderful, attentive, and personable! I 100% recommend going with Ann!

    Wonderful experience with Ann

    Ann did such an amazing job with our ceremony. She was extremely professional, and was very accommodating to every need. Planning a wedding is a stressful experience, but with Ann as our wedding officiant, we had a very large weight taken off our shoulders. We would recommend her to anyone.

    Officiant Ann McKenzie

    David and I loved meeting with Ann. She’s very warm and personable. We were delighted to know that she customizes and tailors to specific couple (if desired) I can’t wait to see what she writes for our wedding. No photos posted as our wedding has yet to happen.

    Same day wedding extravaganza

    Ann was AMAZING! My fiancé and I woke up inspired to get married and Ann helped us with our ceremony the same day. She has a kind and welcoming spirit that created a space of peace and love around us. In as little as an hour we were all set and officially married! Thank you so much for making our day so wonderful and special!

    Oustanding service!

    Rev. McKenzie was very accommodating for us, given the COVID-19 conditions. She is also completely up-to-speed on all of the local regulations and the licensing process, so there won't be any legal hangups. Highly recommend!

    Ann was fantastic!!

    Ann was extremely professional and did such a wonderful job with our ceremony. We had some folks who preferred a religious ceremony and some who did not. She was able to incorporate both of these and really satisfy all aspects we were looking for. She offers a couple of extra special additions to the ceremony, including a beautiful love story, that both my husband and I and our family loved. I highly recommend Ann for anyone looking for a wedding officiant.

    Thomas Wedding

    Ann was wonderful to work with! I loved everything she wrote for our wedding. We are not super religious and she was able to write something that really spoke to us and was appropriate. She was very patient with me (the bride) when I kept having to reschedule our meetings due to my grandfather's death in the beginning. Her kindness really meant something to us. Thank you Ann!

    Best wedding officiant

    Travis and I were so fortunate and blessed to have had Ann officiate our ceremony! Ann was on top of everything from start to finish. She wrote a beautiful ceremony for Travis and I that captured all the moments leading up to our wedding that told a story of us. Ann is professional and organized, I never once had to worry if something was being taken care of because she was reaching out to me before I even had to worry about it. Highly would recommend Ann McKenzie as a wedding officiant! She truly loves what she does!

    Wonderful, personalized ceremony

    Ann was a wonderful officiant for our recent wedding. Ann met us in person, got to know us, and outlined how she would put together a ceremony. She made sure that the ceremony was true to us, and allowed us to add our personal stories and anecdotes to the ceremony. Ann was very easy to work with and did an outstanding job.

    Ann was a great choice to officiate our wedding. Our first meeting was great and put our minds at ease about the process. She was open to including anything that we wanted in the ceremony.

    We highly recommend Ann as a wedding officiant. From the first time we met her and throughout the entire process she made my husband and I feel very comfortable and was easy to open up to. She customized the entire wedding ceremony to fit our personal love story. Despite some unexpected harsh weather that threw a wrench into our plans, Ann kept things calm and light, kept the ceremony flowing, and ensured everyone remembered what the day was all about. We had a fantastic wedding and Ann was a big part of it.
